Cool New Raider owner UK

Hi,

Just joined the forum and dropped in to say hi from the UK.

Lurked for a while and did a load of research before picking up a 2008 Raider.

Lots of mods to do though

Rockin'

I sat on a Raider before purchasing my V Star 950, felt very badass. Haha.

Thanks for sharing your ideas for mods. Best of luck, and sure you'll have fun.
